Hey guys, which is better on a low spec computer, around 2.5 gb RAM. Panda Free, Bitdefender Free, 360 Internet Security or Avira Free ? Thanks for your input. A friend that can't upgrade at the moment was using Avast Free but it caused drastic slowdown and Immunet worked great but he wanted better protection. Any answer is helpful.

I have AVG Free and it got rid of a svchost.exe virus that was using up almost 98% of my cpu and it didnt have any services connected to it so I knew it was a virus hosting itself as a svchost.exe. I used avira,spybot,windows defender,malwarebytes,and norton and none of them could even detect the virus except AVG Free
Try out AVG if none of the other ones work out for you

No problem. I don't know how taxing it is on a slower system because I have the system to handle it without slowing it down I was just giving you my opinion on the one I use
